    A small but significant moment

    I've been doing close to no personal work at all, other than family and vacation snaps, for several months now: I just felt like taking a creative break, like everything was getting stale and repetitive.

    After lunch today I took a sofa nap, and woke up as dusk was falling to see beautiful light outside. Completely forgetting that I was a photographer, I went for a walk. It was stunning. Then I suddenly remembered the iPhone in my pocket and so I became a photographer again - and for the first time in really quite a while, I actually enjoyed it.

    Some of them aren't even in focus...

    Tim,

    Good to have you back, albeit for a few snaps with an iPhone. The mood, light and atmospherics are better than most of us capture with our 36MP monsters. Just proves that creativity may rest, but can easily be reawakened. Thanks for sharing the moment and the story.

    Joe

    Tim, over the years you became too serious a photographer ...
    Remember the good old days ? When we still had a bit of fun ?

    Happy New Year ...

    Kind regards.

    Lovely stuff, Tim. Yet more proof that vision trumps equipment every time.

    Thanks chaps! Bart, you're so right, fun has gotten buried in all the desire for technical perfection - I said to myself that that would never happen but it finally did!

    But here I am, looking at the iPhone snaps and thinking "I really like those as an impression but actually the noise is too digital for my taste and the..."

    OH NO!

    Tim, great to see you posting again. While these don't speak to me (my bad, I am insensitive) I expect they are birthing pains for something that will. Breathe deep and push lad.
